Trustar Goes Bi-Coastal

As some of you might have noticed, I've been out of town/touch a bit for the last several weeks. I've been doing some "real" work on the East Coast, just outside of Washington D.C.. Since my blogger buddy DaBoss from Fat City Cigar Lounge is in that neck of the woods, I made it a point to get ahold of him so we could meet up and have lunch.

We had a great time!!

DaBoss and I have always been muy simpatico when it comes to our musical tastes and I can't count the times when both of us had been ready to post up something, only to find out that the other just beat us to the punch. Twisted minds must think alike. We have found that we have a great many things in common that came across clearly via emails and blog babbleing.

A bright sunny Sunday in Maryland, some fantastic crab cakes, a visit to the Radio & Television Museum and a visit to where it all happens, the Fat City Cigar Lounge. In just a few short hours we covered lots of ground getting to know each other.

I know lots of folks like the privacy of online communication but I have tried to make it a point in my few years on the net to use it to make as many "real" contacts with people that I share a common interest with. It's more then you start with some other types of situations when you meet people.

I've also been trying to work out a hook-up with the guys from Reverb Galaxy here in the Washington D.C. area. Just missed getting into the radio studio with them last Sunday when they played at The University of Maryland station. Damn, missed out by a few hours. But we will keep trying. They have invited me to one of their next practice sessions when I come back.

As I continue to do more traveling for business I will make it a point to connect with the people who have shared so much with me. I hope you will do the same. Send me an email if your in my stomping grounds. Share a drink, grab a bite, check out the waves. It's all good.

A tip of a frosty Mai Tai to my friend, DaBoss. A truely gracious host and just a damn nice guy. Thank you amigo. We'll hook up again.
